Frequently Asked Questions about Frozen Desserts and Ice Creams

Yes. HUL had filed suit against the TVCs of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF), which markets Amul ice cream, for disparaging or denigrating the KWALITY WALL'S Frozen Desserts products. In this Suit, the Hon’ble Bombay High Court vide its order dated 16th June 2017, had asked GCMMF, to stop telecasting its misleading television advertisement. The Court had found the advertisement disparaging the ’Frozen Desserts’ category. GCMMF had preferred an Appeal before the Division Bench of Bombay High Court. The Division Bench of Bombay High Court vide its order dated 13th December 2018, had upheld the earlier order for a single judge confirming that the two TVCs of GCMMF were indeed disparaging and therefore injunction granted earlier was confirmed to the extent the disparaging frames from the TVC were removed. The Court has also injuncted air or similar disparaging Advertisement against Frozen Dessert as a category. The Court, however, had allowed GCMMF to air TVC after removing disparaging frames.

Yes, Kwality Wall’s products have milk/milk solids in them.

No, Kwality Wall’s products do not have Vanaspati in them.

Yes. While both ice cream and frozen dessert certainly contain milk/milk solids, the main difference between the two is in the source of fat. Frozen desserts use vegetable oil in place of milk fat, which actually makes Frozen Desserts responsibly delicious as it has much lower saturated fat content and is trans-fat free!

Vanaspati means any refined edible vegetable oil subjected to the hydrogenation process. Vegetable oils have lower saturated fat and no trans-fat unlike Vanaspati.

Kwality Wall’s primarily uses Vegetable oil as the source of fat in its frozen dessert range to deliver products with better nutrition profile and great taste to consumers. In fact, owing to the use of vegetable oil, Kwality Wall’s frozen dessert range typically has much lower saturated fat and is trans-fat free as compared to Ice Creams. 

Frozen Desserts can certainly be enjoyed as an occasional treat as part of a responsibly delicious balanced diet and active lifestyle.
